Bradford Shellhammer, writing for Dwell, was at the 60s 606 is 50 exhibition and got to chat with Dieter Rams and Mark Adams for about half an hour. I love this parting shot from Dieter Rams to end the interview:

Never forget that a good product should be like a good English butler. They’re there for you when you need them, but in the background at all other times. Besides a few millionaires in London, most of us don’t have butlers.

The butlers of today are our products and our furniture.
